Cal Hobson says he is an ordinary citizen but he has accomplished extraordinary things for Oklahoma.

A fifth-generation Oklahoman, Cal was born in Arizona where his father was stationed as a fighter pilot during Word War II. He grew up in Lexington and graduated as valedictorian of his class.

Cal then attended the University of Oklahoma on a R.O. T.C. scholarship and supported himself by working 40 hours a week. He graduated as a 2nd Lieutenant with highest honors in 1968. After serving on active duty in the Air Force during the Vietnam era, he returned to Lexington and became their youngest mayor.

First elected to the Oklahoma House of Representatives in 1978, Cal was reelected 5 times before running for the State Senate. Elected in 1990, he has served 4 terms in the Senate. In 2003, Cal’s fellow Senators chose him to lead, electing him as the President Pro Tempore.

During these years, Cal continued his service in the Air National Guard and was promoted to Colonel in 1994.

Cal and his wife, Elaine, have three grown children; Matt Huff, Jack Hobson, and Aubrey Hammontree, and two beautiful Oklahoma grandchildren, Tate and Allison. Cal and Elaine live in Lexington in the home his great-grandfather, Dr. Robert E.Lee Thacker, built in 1917.
